phill how was the game station made.
Point is could we turn a standard system into a game station with say a standard flash drive and the cds. What system did the game station stuff run on and what special software do we need.
My point is.
Can a standard system be turned into a game station.
In theory it shouldn't be that hard.
We would need the following.
1. either dos or linux with a screen reader the latter probably better.
the disk with the stuff in.
A standard flash drive for stuff.
Or just have the stuff run off windows.
If all it is is a program called game station then we could do that simular to an emulater. If its a chip or something, make that be able to run on an usb device or as a usb device and that would work.
Now we all should have computers.
Flash drives are cheap I have flash drives the user can buy these.
So except for what is needed for the station and maybe the cd and even these could be downloadable as images or files, then have stuff run on them maybe even have it able to run of the flash or something then the system would be rather cheap. 1. user would need a standard flash drive or a specially modified flash that has the games in one part so no one can hack it and the other part for settings. Then have it either run on windows as an emulater and maybe optionally boot into linux with a distro disk for the game station thing maybe base it of vibuntu where you have all the packages and you could really do that.
What over the standard system made the game station the game station.
If its not much then we are quite there.
I may even have a system that no one wants I could convert into one.

Hi Shaun,
You brought up the PCS game machine. Carl built a prototype in 1998 and we showed it at the blind convention. It was a stripped down DOS computer with a 200 mhz processor CD drive, no hard drive and two speakers. We were going to sell it for about $300 including the 8 CD games we had produced, but the plan fell through. Carl's supplier only had a few of the boxes and parts left and
wanted too much for the next higher speed processor.
You put the game CD in the drive and it booted off a floppy which contained all your high score files and game saved files.
The eight games were,
Duck hunt,
Snipe Hunt,
Space Invaders,
Breakout,
Red Dragon Kick Boxing Challenge,
A 2 Z Key Search
Pac Man, the DOS version,
and Mobius Mountain.
At the time we wer charging thirty dollars for the CD versions, which would be $240 if purchased separately.


This is what I remember, but I may have gotten some of the details wrong.
smiles,
Phil

Hi.
This message is in reply to a couple things.
1 licencing for things.
Not sure how much it would cost if at all for someone to licence stuff for a console or so. ON the subject of our standard console, I am not sure if it would go ok or not. pcs tried to make something called a game station ages back and nothing happened with that.
